The Ravens have certainly overcome adversity this season. With the passing of former owner Art Modell, the loss Torrey Smith’s brother, battling through the injuries, and of course this being Ray Lewis’s last season.
The team will travel to Foxborough for the A-F-C Championship game, for the second straight year, linebacker Ray Lewis said, “I think, going back to last year, we made up our mind at the end of the year that wasn’t for us.”
The Ravens advance to the A-F-C Championship game for the second straight year, and again they will be playing the Patriots. This is a fitting circumstance for the Ravens because of the outcome of last year.

Ray Lewis last home game at M&T Bank Stadium was certainly something special. The crowd was electric. He made his final entrance coming out of the tunnel with his legendary dance that made the fans erupt. It was a table setter for what was a wonderful game and a special day for Baltimore, the Ravens and Lewis.
